Resources from the Diocese of Ely

Each parish will be offering and sharing prayer in a way appropriate to them and within their means. This could include anything from "phone-trees", direct 1-2-1 phone contact with parishioners, online prayer content (both written and video), live streaming of services or the use of  physical assets such as posted prayer cards.

To find out what is available from your local church, visit their sites online or contact them using phone or email.

You can find your local church from the A Church Near You page here. 

Sunday Morning Resources

The Sunday Morning Resources will be adapted for use at home for personal reflection or worship with those you live with - available here.

Family Way of Life

The Family Way of Life resource remains available but in this time of social distancing is being adapted to suit this environment, you can find out more here.

Prayer from Ely Cathedral

Accessing Online Services

It is important to note that many churches will simply not be able to 'live-stream' their service or offer video or sound feeds, just like many seeking a service won't be able to access this type of video resource.

We ask that parishes use the 'live stream' tag on their  A Church Near You page so people can find a live streamed service near them. To find a online service near you, please visit the A Church Near You live stream pages here.

You can visit the Diocesan YouTube channel here for weekly reflections from Bishop Dagmar

Many parishes will be live-streaming and adding content online using a variety of means including Zoom, Facebook, YouTube and Vimeo. The best way to see what your local church is doing is be following their social media channels of by visiting their A Church Near You page or their Parish website.  

Hospital Chaplaincy

The Anglican Chaplain at Papworth and Addenbrookes, the Revd Philip Sharkey, has produced the chaplaincy visit card resource below for those in hospital who may wish to see a Christian Chaplain.
